1992 Safari Granroad
The Nissan Safari Granroad is a massive 4x4 that is a bit more unique than your run-of-the-mill Land Cruiser or Hilux Surf. True to form this truck boasts a reliable drivetrain and a couple of impressive power amenities to make daily driving stress-free. Our example is finished in a black over gray two-tone and offered with a mere 72k original miles. The body and paint are in good overall shape aside from some minor dings and chips associated with normal wear and tear. Additionally, there is some slight paint fade on the lower grey section of the paint from UV exposure over the years. Recently serviced and legally imported, this 1992 would make for a wonderful family hauler or off-road all-star. Collectible, affordable, and unique, this Granroad is a real-deal Japanese Classic.
This high roof model is cavernous inside and includes a few upgrades, The OEM steering wheel was ditched for a snazzy wood-grained unit and the OEM radio has been replaced with a Carrozzaria head unit with auxiliary input. It works well and the clarity is decent for a vehicle of this age. Power equipment includes locks, windows, and side-view mirrors, all of which function properly. The seats are in good shape and lack any major rips stain or tears. This Safari even has a third row available so you can accommodate a total of seven people. While not perfect the interior of this Safari has been well cared for over the years and lacks any major cosmetic issues. The dash shows no major UV damage and the door panels are all quite clean. You'll find the seats are comfortable and in good shape overall. No major rips or tears but the driver's seat bottom does show some small spots of wear visible in the photos.
The drivetrain is simple and sturdy. Upfront the Nissan packs a silky-smooth 4.2L gasoline-powered six-cylinder. The TB42 is fresh off an oil and filter service and springs to life thanks to a new 12v battery. It idles well and is nearly vibration-free. The engine is paired to an automatic gearbox that shifts properly and is geared appropriately for US interstate use. The suspension handles large and small road imperfections without breaking a sweat and the brakes are confident despite this rig's size. The OEM alloys are all wrapped in new all-terrain Falken rubber and we have even replaced the spare tire as well. The new rubber looks great, should last for tens of thousands of miles to come, and can handle all the weather you can throw at them.
